Due to poor snow conditions at Whistler Olympic Park, we have had to cancel Coast Cup #1. Thanks to all those who have volunteered and especially those who have already put in a lot of work preparing for the event. Refunds of the event fees will be issued to all those who registered.
Teck Coast Cup #1 – Whistler Olympic Park
Sunday, December 2, 2018
The Hollyburn Cross Country Ski Club invites you to join us for this year’s Teck Coast Cup #1 at Whistler Olympic Park – the site of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games! The race is designed as an introductory race to start the season off, with relatively short distances ranging from just under one kilometre for Atoms to 7.5 kilometres for adults. We are offering courses that can be enjoyed by children, their parents, and either recreational or dedicated racers.
Callaghan Gold is back for 2018! This is a track of stored snow that we can use to host the race in the event of a less than adequate snow level.
We need volunteers too so, if you do not want to race but can help out with the event, please click on the volunteer registration link below.
